Karren Brady has admitted that West Ham hope to sign several more players ahead of the start of the 2012/13 Premier League campaign.
United's vice-chairm, speaking on Sky Sports News today confirmed that the board were hoping to sign 'a few' players to add to the trio already bagged - goalkeepers Stephen Henderson and Jussi Jaaskelainen plus midfielder Momo Diame.
"We hope to bring in a few more significant signings to improve our team and increase our chances of remaining in the Premier League and really 'have a go'," Brady said.
"We want to compete and make a contribution to this league. West Ham are a great club who deserve to play in the greatest league in the world. Sam [Allardyce] has made a very strategic plan; we have a comprehensive list of players we hope to bring in and we are working to do that."
Despite reports that the Hammers had made an improved bid for Norwich striker Grant Holt - a figure some sources have claimed equates to £5.5million - Brady stopped short of naming any specific targets.
"It's not appropriate to comment on other people's players," she added. "We prefer to do our business face to face with the chairmen of other clubs, and that's what we'll do."

''If Robert Green is included we've lost five players from last seasons first team squad. JJ replaces him, Diame replaces Papa D., which still leaves us three short from a squad that was, at times, stretched in the Championship.
I.M not so humble O. Gold, Sullivan and Brady need to shut up about what they are going to do and just do it.''
